The guide of the 7 Summits Club Andrey Berezin reports from Nepal:
Namaste! The Himalayan season has begun! Two of our groups: the climbing group "Chronic climbers" (going to Island Peak) and the trekking group "Kumari of October" (Everest Base Camp) arrived in Lukla yesterday and went on the route. The first night in Phakding, in a beautiful comfortable hotel. A cyclone came to the Himalayas, all afternoon and night it was pouring heavy rain. Today we hope to arrive in Namche Bazaar, the capital of the Sherpas, before the rain. Group guides: Alexander Dorojukov (trekking) and Andrey Berezin (mountaineering).
